The unified heavyweight champ continued by focusing on Tyson and used a quote from 'Iron' Mike's legendary former trainer, Cus D'Amato.

'AJ' posted: "A boy comes to me with a spark of interest, I feed the spark and it becomes a flame. I feed the flame and it becomes a fire. I feed the fire and it becomes a roaring blaze."
